Written by one of the all-time greats of Scottish literature, truly revolutionary, "A Scots Quair" is a trilogy of novels: "Sunset Song" (1932), "Cloud Howe" (1933) and "Grey Granite" (1934). At each book's core is the heroine Chris Guthrie, as she grows from a child into adulthood through the Great War to the development of communism in the 1920s. Grassic Gibbon's writing is unique and riveting, blending Scots and English in an accessible style, and eloquent in its humanity and celebration of nature.
